Workers’ Compensation is regulated by state law and is not administered in the same way as your group medical insurance policy. Workers’ Compensation benefits covers industrial injury and illness for Diocese of San Jose employees and begins on your date of hire.  Our third party administrator who manages our claims is Athens Administrators, P. O. Box 696, Concord, CA 94566, (866) 482-3535.

Workers’ Compensation benefits do not cover injuries arising from volunteer participation or any pre-existing condition, off-duty recreation, social, or athletic activity that is not work related.

Please note Clergy and Religious Sisters are not covered under workers’ compensation.  Their respective orders take care of any occupational injuries and associated medical expenses.
